When I was a child, I used to go to Sunday School with three Bibles under my arm. The King James, The Revised
Standard, and Good News For Modern Man. I would look up verses from the lessons and compare them in all three translations
to try and understand them better.
Many years later I learned that, in jest, the adults in my family
had nicknamed me "The Little Pastor."
As my father lay dying in late 2006, I realized I have long been
an atheist, yet I needed to make moral decisions about the rest of his life and his impending death.
How do you
live a moral life and make moral decisions in the absence of a religion or diety that gives you guidance? Do you turn
with wobbling knees and faltering heart back to a G_d whom you deny? Or do you forge ahead, following your own instincts
and judgement? Or, are there yet other choices?
As we science-educated, materialistic Baby Boomers enter
our second half century, those and similar questions loom large for some of us.
